A Funeral for an Owl – Jane Davis

Question: What is Jane Davis?

J D Favourite

Answer: A writer who weaves intricate plots with compelling, fully developed characters. I have now read five of her books. Each time I think, “Wow, this is the best yet.” Then I read another and think, “Wow, this is the best yet.”

Question: What makes her books so riveting?

Answer: Simply put, Jane is gifted. Not a single word is out of place whether she’s describing the setting, reaching into the characters’ soul, engaging her characters in dialogue…. The reader is never tempted to scan or skip portions. In fact, one is more likely to go back and re-read bits, whole chapters, or the whole book.

Question: What does Jane write about?

Answer: People. Ordinary people. Ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. A wall falls on a young girl leaving her horribly disfigured. A teacher is stabbed in a school yard fight. Several people are killed in a terrible tube accident in London. Jane then takes these characters, their families, friends, neighbours, and strangers and us along for the ride as the story plays out. And what a ride it is.

My two favorites so far–although, it’s impossible not to love them all–are

A Funeral for an Owl and Smash all the Windows.
